Regulatory Improvement Code Amendment Packages provide an ongoing and rapid vehicle for technical and minor policy amendments to land use regulations to ensure they are clear and do not hinder desirable development. Requested amendments are identified by staff and community members, then ranked and prioritized with the final work plan approved by the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC).
The RICAP 6 Discussion Draft report contains 45 items, 37 of which propose amendments to the Zoning Code. These items vary widely by topic, and include adding a new bed and breakfast permit process that allows people to rent up to two bedrooms in their home to overnight guests, revising the cell phone facility regulations to comply with federal requirements, and providing more clarity for temporary activities such as commercial filming and construction staging.
A complete list of the items and summary of the proposed amendments can be found on the project website.
